Richard Susskind is one of the world's leading experts on the application of information technology in the legal field, and an independent consultant to the government, private sector law firms and industry. His previous books, Expert Systems in Law (OUP, 1987) and The Future of Law (OUP, 1996), have both served to set the agenda for the serious discussion of the subject. This new volume features major new essays that analyse where the legal marketplace and community has now got to in applying and responding to the new technological possibilities, and examines the key issues that must now be tackled (in particular knowledge management and electronic commerce). It also includes eleven of Richard Susskind's most important past essays, on the legal application of IT, each updated to make clear their continued relevance to law and justice today.
